Many residents of Southeast Florida are anticipating a stimulus check. Who will receive a check?  A Person earning up to $75,000 in adjusted gross income and who has a valid Social Security number will receive a $1,200 payment. That also indicates married couples, filing joint tax returns, will receive the full payment of $2,400 if their reported adjusted gross income is under $150,000. Parents will also receive $500 for each qualifying child.  You must earn at least $2,500 to qualify for the payments.

Test?  The big question may very well be, “How smart is smart enough to run our great nation?”.

George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States, received a reputation by some for being a somewhat unwise individual. Some felt he did not live up to his 138.5 I.Q. Others saw him very favorably. He can be quite the wordsmith, he lacked public speaking skills, thusly many of his statements didn’t translate. Like many of us, he may not have had outstanding grades during high school, but he did do an amazing job of engaging with peers!

It’s a wreck out there – a shipwreck!  A couple hundred feet off the Delray Beach Municipal Beach lies the “S.S. Inchulva”.  The ship went down in the historical hurricane of 1903. This sunken steel-hulled freighter has become a very popular diving location in South Florida, and it is excellent for the beginner diver. The nearly 400-foot freighter rests in only 25 feet of water and is a great dive or snorkeling spot.

 The "S.S. Inchulva" set sail from England in July 1903, bound for Galveston to receive a shipment of agricultural products. In what became its final voyage, the ship left Galveston Sept. 6 with a cargo of wheat, lumber and cotton. Its destination was Newport News, Virginia.  It is not known if the ship was aware of a hurricane
